We were at an Olive Garden in Naperville and preferred that location. They brought breadsticks 4 at a time, but only 2 at this location. Also- the take home prepackaged had a greater quantity in Naperville as well. The food tastes great at both locations

My expectations weren't high based on reviews and previous visit, but I had a gift card. The restaurant was not as worn out as I recalled, so some renovations must have taken place. Some reviews questioned the cleanliness, but I thought it was okay. On...More
